The 1796 LIHERTY Large Cent was caused because the letter B was rotated 180 degrees when being punched into the coin die. Upon catching the mistake, the Mint die sinker re-punched the letter the correct way creating a letter that looks like an H rather than a B, and as result creating the popular LIHERTY variety. There are not too many examples that exist of this variety making it very scarce, especially in graded of Fine or higher.
